Two children have been killed during a Sudanese government air strike in South Kordofan state, where troops have been battling rebels for two years, the insurgents said on Monday.
Sudan's military spokesman could not be reached for comment, and the government restricts access to the region, which makes independent verification difficult.
The children died in Tanasa village, near Buram town, in the strike by a government jet on Sunday, the Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North said in a statement.
It said the victims were aged 10 and seven.
